County Farm Bureaus+

Each of the 25 organized county Farm Bureaus elects a Board to lead its organization. The length of service by each Board member is determined by the By-Laws of the county Farm Bureau. In addition to board members, each county has committees to focus on issues of greatest importance to that county Farm Bureau.
